Perception of New York City in Goodbye to All by Joan Didion and American Psycho by Bret Easton

- Both “Goodbye to All That” by Joan Didion and American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis portray New York as a city where it is horrible to live, filled with homeless men, filth, crime, and complete displeasure, but for some reason, nobody leaves. The perception of New York City given by these two passages is a contradictory one. In both passages the narrators describe the city with great disappointment and Didion also adds a tone of annoyance to her passage, annoyed that even though she hates pretty much everything about New York she doesn’t leave, and instead of staying for the 6 months as she originally planned, getting anxious to finally be free from the horrible city, she stays for 8...   [tags: say, city, complain, wrong]

The Empire State Building

- The Empire State Building is perhaps the iconic skyscraper. It has stood the test of time as a classic piece of art deco architecture, and has continued to dominate the city's skyline ever since its completion. Recently, the Empire State Building has gotten an update. There has been a new antenna put on and most notably are the new LED lights that illuminate the New York Skyline every night.
